We stayed here for 2 nights early July. There were 5 women and we booked a triple and a double room for our stay. The rooms were a nice size and the bathrooms were well equipped. The train station was right behind the hotel (although we did not hear any noise) but it made it convenient to get to cobh... More

This B&B is quiet, friendly, and pretty conveniently located. You will need to park on the street if you are in a car, which is a minor inconvenience, but do-able. The owner gave us recommendations on where to go for live music, and the easiest ways to get around town. Comfortable beds, spacious bathroom. Clean. Would stay here again.

Cannot rate this highly enough. Good location, wonderful hosts, lovely spacious character room, fantastic breakfasts, and little extras, like dimmer switches on bedside lights. They even booked our theatre tickets for us!

This was a warm, friendly and well kept B & B only 10 minutes walk from the city center. The room was lovely, spacious and sparkling, with in-room coffee/tea. Breakfasts were yummy and made to order. A great place to stay and we would again.

We stayed in the family room on the third floor which was very convenient. The service and particularly the atmosphere provided by the hostess was excellent. We definetely would book Kent House again and recommend it very gladly.

Nice b&b, with kind owners doing more than enough for a good stay! We got all sorts of information about the town and the parts were we was going. The rooms was nice, and had a feeling of "home".

Stayed here last night with 2 kids, room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Was even a playstation in the room which was a major bonus for the kids. Breakfast was lovely. The owners were a lovely friendly couple. Highly recommended the b&b for a stay.
